Weapons Monthly First Issue.

The Weapons Monthly magazines are items in Final Fantasy VIII, found in various places around the world of Final Fantasy VIII. Each magazine contains information about various models of weapons, which can be upgraded. Even though weapons can be upgraded without the magazine in which it is mentioned, it is useful, as it gives the player information on how many items are needed for the upgrade.

Some magazines can be purchased in Esthar's Book Store, but may need the Guardian Force Tonberry's Familiar ability to appear in the shop list.

Magazines Edit

Weapons Monthly, March Issue Edit

Elvoret battle

Elvoret battle.

Found at the top of Dollet communications tower after defeating Elvoret. The Elvoret drops the magazine upon defeat.

Weapons Monthly, April Issue Edit

Weapons Monthly April location from FFVIII Remastered

Squall's new room.

Found on a table in Squall's new dorm room at Balamb Garden, after the SeeD ball.

Weapons Monthly, May Issue Edit

Weapons Monthly May issue in Deling City Sewers from FFVIII R

Deling Sewers.

Found in the Deling City Sewers. Located behind the Presidential Residence, this portion of the sewers can be accessed by either Rinoa or Squall during their respective trips into the residence. The area where the magazine is obtained becomes inaccessible after climbing up to the Presidential Residence roof with Squall.

Weapons Monthly, June Issue Edit

Missile Base 2

Missile Base.

Found after defeating the BGH251F2 at the Missile Base. The machine drops the magazine upon defeat.

Weapons Monthly, July Issue Edit

Weapons Monthly July Issue from FFVIII Remastered

The magazine can be found by returning to Balamb Garden Training Center after the Battle of the Gardens and entering the area on the left.

Weapons Monthly, August Issue Edit

Weapons Monthly August Issue from FFVIII Remastered

The "treasure" of Trabia Garden can be found five steps south of the Gargoyle fountain, barely seen.

Unlike the other Weapons Monthlies that become available in the order of the months, the August issue can be picked up before the one for July. It is possible this is a mistake, and the issues were intended to be in the opposite order.

Weapons Monthly, 1st Issue Edit

Weapons Monthly First Issue from FFVIII Remastered

Can be found in the Lunatic Pandora Laboratory during the last Laguna dream sequence. The player needs to go back into the Lunatic Pandora Laboratory and pick it up from the floor. The magazine is also sold in Karen's Shop in Esthar City with Tonberry's Familiar ability learned.

Other appearances Edit

  • There is a "Weapons Monthly" magazine in the item shop at Meldacio Hunter HQ in Final Fantasy XV as an allusion to Final Fantasy VIII.
